Marriage 601, Lecture 621: Maybe we start a line of appliances called Lazarus

SH: It's at times like this that I wish that pod coffee maker still worked.

Me: You mean the one that's broken?

SH: Yes.

Me: And that's still in the basement rather than in the trash?

SH: Yes.

Me: And we can't throw it away why?

SH: I still maintain hope that some day, I will plug it in and it will work.

Me: You mean that some kind of magic will heal an electric appliance.

SH: Yes.

Me: Does that happen a lot?

SH: Sometimes. Sometimes things work intermittently.

Me: And sometimes they are just broken.
